There has been an explosion of steel scaling sides of buildings all over New York City. Restaurants. Hotels. Residential buildings. These metal webs remain installed not for months but for years.

Just found out that one of our favorite Upper West Side seafood restaurants has closed. Entrance-obstructing scaffolding has left former sidewalk diners and customers at bay since 2012. What the hell?
